    I really like the look - not something I would wear, but it works for him. The waist treatment is a bit strong, but i think it "fits" everywhere..

    Thanks for posting the pics! I think the three piece looks excellent. Is your right shoulder really low?

    Are the shoulders of these two jackets relatively soft?

    How many fittings does a suit usually take? I'd be interested in getting fitted for one of his suits next time i'm visiting my GF's family.

    I would love to see the very first piece he did to get an idea of how good Ercole is the first time round.

    Yes, I have strong shoulders so we go with very light to no padding.

    Generally 2 or 3.

    I would love to see the very first piece he did to get an idea of how good Ercole is the first time round.

    I have some pics I think, will have to dig them up. I still have the jacket, but its been altered tremendously as I put on about 15 pounds of upper body muscle since I had it made a few years ago.

    I ordered number 2 Saturday. After it is finished I will poast some pics. I think this one will be a little more SF approved than the first. I think it will be good to see the different capabilities of Frank. After I post I will tell you what I said to him and we will see how it affects the outcome.
